Getting back to bigger boats, this is the Horizon "Ms. Cookie IV". Whatta ya think... Ms. Fields?
Lazzara Skylounge "Carmara"...
The name was "Pyewacket", whatever THAT means!
Knotta yacht, but unquestionably... without a doubt... the fastest boat in the yacht flocking thread... my neighbor's 28' Skater with *TRIPLE* 300X's. THIS boat is where the term "Godspeed" came from! (I'd estimate 130 mph +)
In the movie Bell, Book, and Candle Gillian Holroyd's cat is named Pyewacket, but the cat itself was a Siamese cat, not a black cat — the type most commonly associated with witches. The name has become a fairly popular one for cats because of this movie, but relatively few know its origin.
Pyewacket is also the current name of a MaxZ86 class sailing yacht commissioned in 2004 by Roy Disney, former CEO of the Walt Disney Corporation, designed by Reichel-Pugh along with an identical sister ship named the "Morning Glory," and built in the Cooksons shipyard in Auckland, New Zealand. The boat is a modern turbo sled, equipped with a hydraulically equipped canting keel which allows it to shift its keel-ballast during full sail in order to reach previously unbelievable speeds. The boat was recently donated to Orange Coast College in hopes of a full season of record breaking racing by amateur student sailors.
Pyewacket 81' 1977 Broward
especially for the spectator
Yesterday, the past was followed by the present. This was "Cherokee"...
... and Cherokee's fast-forward fifty years counterpart.
This boat is a VERY modernized Huckins with jet drives! Not one to be appreciated by Huckins purists (myself included), but still a nice boat.
Its on the market for $2.3M
Correct. I sold her in March 2005 to a couple in Annapolis. "Windrush" is a 55' Trumpy built in 1966. You may have seen her in previous years at Vintage Weekend at Ocean Reef under her previous ownership. She is currently doing crewed charters.
what is the maximum size yacht permited to pass trrough icw where the yacht flocking pictures are taken?
Good question. So far, the largest yacht I've seen is Tiger Wood's "Privacy", a 157' Christensen. I would have taken a pic, but I was busy checking out the all female crew. I'll post new Yacht Flocking images later today, maybe tomorrow...
No Permission Needed
There is actually no regulatory body who will restrict passage on the ICW. The limiting factors are depth and width. I can't recall anyplace on the entire ICW where length would restrict your passage.
Carl, from the pics I'm guessing your perch is somewhere north of PGA on the east side? So to be specific for that area the restrictions are:
Depth - Supposedly controlled at 8' (but they're not really maintaining that anymore).
Height- 65' (which is the limit for fixed bridge height for the entire ICW except one bridge which is 55')
Beam- At 85'- 90' it's not really a factor, although I suppose a huge squatty barge could push those limits).
So, in reality you'll not likely see any yachts greater than 155' transitting that stretch. Another factor is that the next deep water inlet to the north is Ft. Pierce at approximately 45 miles.
Based on this sportfish, the largest boat that can pass by the YF cam would be Infinity. Harry would be proud...
Raising the decibel level... this Viking 'MIMS" could be heard coming for over a mile. Quite possibly the noisiest (word?) boat to pass by the YF cam...
This is "Sunday Money". Makes you wonder about Monday...
thats one big sportfish!!!
An Ocean Alexander...
Its 70 feet.
Very cool open interior, and huge 21.6 ft beam!
